LISTEN: “Hold On Just a Little While Longer,” African American spiritual | Performed by the Rev. Cleophus Robinson Jr., on Consolation (1980)

Hold on just a little while longer
Hold on just a little while longer
Hold on just a little while longer
Everything will be alright

Sing on just a little while longer
Sing on just a little while longer
Sing on just a little while longer
Everything will be alright

Payday
Is comin’ after a while
And it won’t be very long
You gonna look for me
And I’ll be gone
I’m gon’ walk around God’s throne

Hold on just a little while longer
Hold on just a little while longer
Hold on just a little while longer
Everything will be alright

Walk on just a little while longer
Walk on just a little while longer
Walk on just a little while longer
Everything will be alright
